Episode 1: How I Overcame Money Shame and Began Building Wealth 

For the 1st episode of say hola wealth, I talk about my personal money story as a Latina. I started my journey in the hospitality industry and overworked myself...

Ultimately I was faced with one of the most difficult decisions in my life which led me to launch Viva la Budget & Finance to serve Latinas with understanding their relationship with money and start building wealth. It wasn’t an easy journey and I share it all today with you busy mujer. 

It’s time to talk about money stories, and for the first episode of say hola wealth, I’m sharing my personal money story with you. 

I talk about my humble beginnings and not having a community while growing up. 

The lack of community motivated me to build a successful career. 

Unfortunately, that led me to overwork myself with zero support. 

I faced a difficult decision. I share how that led me to discover my purpose and find the community I was searching for when I was younger. 

Discovering my purpose also led me to prepare for my financial journey.

However, I did not receive support and guidance from a financial planner. I knew that I needed to help my Latina community understand their relationship with money.

I also share why I started Viva la Budget & Finance and why it is vital to be comfortable to have conversations about our relationship with money, wanting more, and pushing aside the shame that has been placed on us by our family.
